A Chevy Suburban is a Perfect Family Vehicle

Hi Neighbors!

As many of you know we have a large family, at least in most people's eyes it is large.  So when choosing a vehicle we needed something that would comfortably seat all of us.  After much research we decided on a Chevy Suburban.  We started searching dealerships.  We never actually visited a Chevy Dealership Wheeling IL, but you can probably find one there.

We actually found one we thought would be perfect, but the timing did not work out, so we kept looking.  We finally found a black suburban with tinted windows. There are two seats up front with a console in between.  The middle seat is for the oldest three and then the younger (not really so young) sit in the back.  We use the far back cargo area for our electronics, luggage, and occasionally the dogs.  When we all take a trip together we have to use a luggage carrier on top, or we pull our cargo trailer behind.  The Suburban already had a hitch, so we didn't even have to add one!

Lately we have taken a few trips with just a portion of the family.  Then we have a little more room inside.  Even now we are stretching the limits sometimes when all of us go.  Anyway, when we use the cargo trailer then only our electronics ride in the cargo area, along with the extra pillows and blankets that come along.

One of the things I like is the full dash.  The other vehicle we use is an Explorer, and the dash leaves much to be desired.  With the dash in the Suburban we keep the atlas up there, along with books and such.  And the great thing is that it doesn't slide off!

The other feature I really appreciate is that it has separate controls for the heat/air for the driver and passenger.  I like it cold and my husband prefers it warm.  He cranks his side up to 80 and I turn mine down to 65.  It is pretty funny sometimes.  The children control the temperature in the back.

We have owned a Suburban before and now my husband says it is the type of vehicle he would like to own the rest of his life.  I know at this point I wouldn't mind that.  It is one of the most comfortable vehicles we have owned.

What is your favorite vehicle?  Do you use it for trips?  Tell us in a comment why you like that type of vehicle.  Have a great day and I look forward to seeing you At the Fence soon!
